I need someone's advice on this subject.
My mother wants my dad to come home to spend the night in a few days and they said that his medicine and food needs to be given through his peg tube.
They all looked to me to do this, since I am in nursing school
. I am heading to 3rd semester in 3 months and I have been checked off in school on giving meds through ng tubes. My teacher always said peg tubes are just the same.
His nurse at the nursing home is suppose to demonstrate it to make sure I know how this Monday.
He had a major stroke last year and he is totally dependent. He can talk and everything just fine, but he is paralyzed on his right side and can no longer do things for himself.
My question is, Can you do clinical skills at home that you have been checked off on?
However, I was thinking this wasnt a good idea.My teachers always say they like to supervise over us, since we do not have our license to practice.It just doesnt feel right and I have only did the ng tube stuff on a mannequin, not a real person yet. Can someone please give me advice on this?
